Why is the will necessary?
Passing without a will in place could leave your loved ones facing financial hardship, unbearable pressure and mounting legal fees at a time of mourning By protecting your assets and making it clear what happens to them, a will can reduce the anxiety that your family experiences. If I don’t draw up a will what can happen? Few people consider what could happen in the months and years that follow. Assets may be taken away by the state or frozen in lieu of court judgements, and also, if a surviving partner remarries, then it is very possible that your children don’t get the inheritance that you would have liked them to have. Most people assume that the spouse inherits everything when there is no will drawn up. The process through which this happens is not always easy though. It is surprising how common disputes are when relatives begin to fight over a deceased’s estate.

What Happens if I Don't Have a Will in Chiddingly
With emotions high to begin with, disputes can cause a massive amount of emotional distress at such a difficult time, Assets will be distributed according to the law when there is no will in place, and this may not be how you want things to proceed. As someone married and with children, it is not necessarily the case that your spouse will automatically inherit your estate. Instead, your assets may be divided between your spouse and your children. If you aren’t married to your partner, then they may not get an inheritance from you. A will can protect your estate from almost any eventuality.

Keeping your will Having your will stored safely and it being easily to locate could be the difference between officially dying “intestate”, and seeming to not have a valid will in place, and immediately having a valid, legally binding will available. When your will has been written, you need to keep it in a place that is safe and where your executors will be able to find it when the time comes. Your will must be found by your executors and must not be damaged in order for them to guarantee that the people that you want to get your money, assets and property will get them distributed to them as you desire. It might be a good idea to store your will with the probate service, a separate solicitor or with our own storage service for wills – we can advise you on the best option.
